Stand With Indigenous People of Brazil - SAVE THE AMAZON
Slowing down the climate change with Zero D
Because ancient forest stocks a tremendous amount of carbon, they will release a huge quantity of greenhouse gas effect, if they are destroyed. Before reforesting, it is urgent to slow down the global deforestation.
Acknowledging native territories and their autonomy is a fundamental right recognized by the United Nations Chart of Human Rights, but a number of States keep scoffing it.
Zero Deforestation is a solidarity initiative for land restitution to Native people, either through a legal process when possible (Ecuador, Peru) or by buying back acres of lands when settlers inhabit the area (Colombia).
Thanks to your help, vast natural spaces rich in biodiversity will be protected from shameless exploitation, whether it be forestry, mine, oil or agriculture.
Every hectares of Amazonian forest saved enables to protect many vegetal species that could be useful in the future and stock 650 tons of carbon, the equivalent of the amount of emission generated by 24 millions km with a light car !(Source)
The Amazon is the planet's largest remaining rainforest, teeming with more wildlife than anywhere else on Earth. But this majestic rainforest is caught between the twin destructive forces of deforestation and climate change. Greenpeace is campaigning for an end to deforestation in the Amazon by 2015 and globally by 2020.

Save the Amazon!
To President Dilma Rousseff:
We call on you to take immediate action to save Brazil's precious forests by vetoing the changes to the forest law. We also urge you to prevent further murders of environmental activists and workers by increasing law enforcement against illegal loggers and ramping up protection for people at risk from violence or death. The world needs Brazil to be an international leader on the environment. Your strong action now will safeguard the planet for future generations.
Save the Amazon Rainforest
The amazon rainforest is the largest rainforest in the world. It covers 2.5 million miles of South America. But this magnificent rainforest is in trouble.
